About the Speaker:

Dr. Zitzewitz is Associate Professor of Art History and Visual Culture and core faculty member in the Global Studies in Arts and Humanities program. She earned her Ph.D. in Anthropology at Columbia University. Her forthcoming manuscript, The Art of Secularism, won the Edward C. Dimock, Jr. Prize for the Humanities from the American Institute for Indian Studies. Her research focuses on the different ways that Indian artists—both Hindu and Muslim—have inhabited the secular space of the art world during and after the rise of fundamentalist politics. She is beginning a new project on the contemporary art of India and Pakistan, the first installment of which will be curated exhibitions at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at MSU.
